Martin gave small office space to his wife at the back of his first business, Penny Shop, only to bring in an extra income. Within a few months, Mar†in’s Funerals expanded drastically, causing them to close Penny Shop to cope with the demands of Mar†in’s Funerals.
Through the grace of God, the company relocated to premises in 1stStreet, Randfontein, which also consisted of a single long office, but this time it included a small kitchen. At this stage, there were enough funds saved to build a cooling facility on their farm, outside Randfontein.
Through private funerals and a number of contracts awarded to Mar†in’s Funerals, they were able to accumulate enough funds to purchase vehicles and other equipment, which were all paid for in cash. They employed more staff; general workers, agents, and even a cleaner for the office!
The business expanded at a rapid pace, and they turned to God for premises suitable for their business needs. To the astonishment of many, God gave 21 Fedler Street, Randfontein, today the official place of business for Mar†in’s Funerals Franchising (Pty) Ltd) to them, at the price, He promised!
These premises covered all their requirements. It included a reception area, three arrangements offices, three administration offices, a kitchen, a cooling facility for +/- fifty bodies, three storerooms, seven double garages, two imported hearses, corpse removal trailers, family cars and a security office, with enough space for a parking area and expansion left!
Mar†in’s Funerals Franchising (Pty) Limited have contracts with various mining groups, burial societies and insurance companies.
The company soon grew from one office in Randfontein to a group with 165 outlets countrywide, and still growing!
